Squirrelly Banana Buns


You may recall back when I first made Squirrelly Buns here 


The reason I decided to make them again was because I got
 a package in the mail that inspired me to revamp the recipe


Pamela's Products was more than generous
 enough to send me two of their baking mixes to try!!!


They're my favorite gluten-free company, which I believe
 carries the best quality baking mixes, cookies and snacks


Mmm just wanna grab a bite of that cake :)


So yup, you know what that means... Squirrelly Buns
 are now gluten-free! I was also inspired to add mashed
 bananas to my recipe, thanks to Monet :)


Squirrelly Banana Buns


Step One:
1/3 cup soy milk
1/3 cup warm water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp softened butter

A. Add milk + water to bowl and whisk in butter + sugar
B. Stir in 1 packet of active-dry yeast
C. Cover with a cloth and let sit for 10-15 minutes


Step Two:
2 mashed bananas
1 large beaten egg
1/4 cup canola oil
(whole 680g package)

A. Mix bananas, egg, oil + vanilla in a bowl
B. Add the other bowl with the yeast together
C. Slowly pour in your baking mix flour
D. Using your hands, blend and knead dough
E. Shape into a ball and cover with a cloth
F. Place in a warm area for 1 hour to rise



Step Three:

2/3 cup brown sugar
1-2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins + nuts
(I use chopped walnuts)

A. Preheat oven to 365 F
B. Sprinkle flour on counter and roll out dough
(Helps to save aside extra flour to use if dough sticks)
C. Keep rolling until you have a rectangle-like shape
D. Spread on butter, then sugar, then cinnamon
E. Sprinkle on raisins and nuts

G. Cut into 2-3 inch pieces and place in greased pan
